On our program today, another update from Annapolis and the 2021 General Assembly. We’re going to concentrate on tax policy. Last week, the legislature overrode Governor Larry Hogan’s veto of legislation that passed last year to impose a tax on Digital Ads. A well-funded coalition of business owners called Marylanders for Tax Fairness strenuously oppose the digital ad tax, calling it a tax on small businesses.

Later in the program, we’ll be joined by Ned Atwater, a business advocate and restaurateur who runs a group of six restaurants here in Baltimore.

But Tom’s first guests today are Delegate Stephanie Smith from Baltimore and Delegate Vaughn Stewart from Montgomery County.

The coalition is also working on a few different pieces of legislation that will change the state tax code.

Delegate Stewart, Delegate Smith and Ned Atwater join us on Zoom…
